Rain-lilies: Habranthus, Zephyranthes, Cooperia etc 2020
« on: January 11, 2020, 10:44:31 AM »
We had about 5 mm of rain 5 days ago and it seems to have been enough to trigger these Habranthus martinezii to out up a few blooms!
cheers

Rain a few days ago has prompted more rain-lilies:
Habranthus tubispathus - typical orange exterior form x2
Habranthus tubispathus - pink form
Habranthis tubispathus - apricot form
Habranthis tubispathus pink & dark orange forms - both came as seed of something else!
cheers

Habranthus hybrid we raised a few years ago by crossing H.robustus "Russell Manning" x H.martinezii

Lost the label on this one but I'm pretty sure it's a sister seedling to the the previously posted Habranthus hybrid but being closer in appearance to H. martinezii,

A few weeks ago at the last gardening event before Covid-19 I got this pot of Habranthus gracilifolius from Garry Reid of Obscure Bulbs

You have a great collection Fermi, and they enjoy your conditions.
Presumably those are letterboxes rather than a beehive in the background of your first photo above ;D

First flowering of Zephyranthes primulina from PBS seed sown 2016. Appears to be setting seed too so maybe many more to come.
